In 2009 we met Peter Casier, from Logistics division in the United Nations’ World Food Programme.
His staff have an urgent need for a new website that effectively supports their activities.
The current prototype is slow and hard to manage for the editors. They also need to pull data from other United Nations’ data systems, and to automatically publish it in real time, on their portal.
We need a brand new website, which is usable, easy to manage and integrated with legacy systems. Can you do it in 3 months?
We start cooking: at WFP they are used to deliver in time, to save human lives. We have to deliver a website just as fast as they move food to the hungry.
At the WFP headquarters in Rome we collect the requirements. In one week, we design the Information Architecture together with their staff.
We start the development on Drupal, a strong Open Source CMS (with users ranging from the White House to the Financial Times and the BBC), capitalizing on our team’s excellent skills.
We design the editors’ interface to hide the heterogonous nature of their data, letting them manage internal or external documents in the same way, allowing a very flexible publication system, supporting reuse of the same content in several page and page regions, with context-aware data polling.
As we work on the development together, they immediately accept our first version of their website: the editors immediately start working on it and in a few weeks they have completed filling in the content for the launch.
